Manny Hits Home Run Number 500

Not a bad weekend thus far for Boston sports fans.

Manny Ramirez hit the 500th home run of his career tonight in Baltimore. It was struck in the seventh inning, on the first pitch he saw from former teammate Chad Bradford. On NESN, Don Orsillo gave the call, and then he and Jerry Remy let the moment speak for itself.

Somewhere, Mike Adams was heard complaining that Manny watched the home run for too long and didn’t run the bases quickly enough.

Could that Brady/Patriots window, just like the Celtics, be closed for good?

The colossal second-coming of Joe Montana, once a perfect 10-0 and then 14-2 in the postseason, needed a Tim Tebow tumble to reality and a choke for the ages by Baltimore’s Lee Evans and Billy Cundiff — just to pick up a couple playoff wins.

    you’re right on Mikey Adams. his angle on the baseball show was you can’t retire Manny’s #24 without also doing the same for Dwight Evans. and that Doooey hit more HR’s with the Sox and prevented more runs in the field.

    Mickey Adams is the only person in the world that could make Dennis and Callaghan the SECOND worst show on EEI. Michael Holley is the only reason to listen to that station.

    The OrsilloBot (Rev 8.0) is incapable of improvisation so it had no other choice but to stop speaking after reciting the pre-programmed script for Manny’s 500th.
